Swansea City Under-18s return to Professional Development League action on Saturday (11am) as they travel to Lancashire to take on Burnley at Barnfield Training Facility. 

Darren Davies' side will be looking to make it back-to-back away league wins after taking the three points at Sheffield Wednesday last time out, thanks to goals from Iwan Morgan and Geoff Bony.

The young Clarets currently sit in seventh position in the north division, in what is their first season in the PDL. They sit on three points after losing their two opening games of the campaign against Reading and Bristol City.

"We're looking forward to it, we've prepared well," said coach Davies.

"We trained on Friday morning in Swansea before travelling and it's another overnight stay, so we'll look to make sure the players get some good rest on the back of the journey.

"There hasn't been many competitive fixtures between the clubs at youth level over the last couple of years, so we're looking forward to a new test. 

"With last weekend's postponement of our game against Hull, we're looking forward to getting stuck back into action and continuing our good away run.

"We always focus on our performance, both individually and collectively. 

"We've had an excellent week this week, we've had the chance to do some double sessions, get the work in and have soon good analysis sessions both on training and match analysis. 

"It's been an all round good week, the boys are excited and we'll look to get a good result."
